Rooms to Breathe

This event has ended.
From Edi Dubien’s encounters with animal and vegetal life, keeping nature close at hand, a tactic for the fauna that inhabits his art to make its way into the open, to Cathy Burghi’s tropical luxuriance translating into fecundity and brightly colored mutations of the flesh, Rooms to Breathe celebrates the will to wander and the feasibility of fusion and transformation.
The Lichen Bar is a project by SZ brings together works by Clarisse Robin, Emma di Orio, Wenzhou, Yushi Li and videos by Gary Hill, Simon Faithfull, Robert Cahen, and Edin Velez. This room will function as a retreat, a composite organism made up of drawings, illustration, media and photography that thrives longer by living together. A parcel allotted for works to plant roots, to photosynthesize, and become a forest.
Three rooms that poetically disrupt prevailing discursive and institutional articulations of sexuality and nature. The works celebrate ecological interactions, and environmental politics, they consider sexuality and gender becomings as complex biological and political assemblages rather than purely determined processes. This allows for considerations of cross-species and eco-sexualities, an ethical and political opening for love that includes post-human corporealities.
